Shannon DeJong is Founder and CEO of House of Who, Inc., a mission-driven creative agency and brand arthouse located in the San Francisco Bay Area. She writes and speaks on topics of truth in branding, female leadership, creative entrepreneurship, mental health, and was keynote speaker at the 2010 New Mexico Consumer Wellness Conference. She's on a mission to wake up the world, and herself, to the Truth of who we are.

Shannon draws on her eclectic background of the Arts, Corporate America and Zen Buddhism to inquire into and cultivate Truth in Identity and Art in Business. 

She is co-producer and protagonist in ArtistCEO, a true-story narrative podcast asking the question: Can Business and Art live in harmony? As an actress, she has written and performed one-woman-shows in New York, San Francisco, and The Southwest and in the Women at Work festival in NYC and Solo Performance Festival in Santa Fe, NM. She most recently presented a talk at radio streaming company, TuneIn about obstacles women face in business and career.

  • Birthing Art Instead of Kids. In this talk geared towards female-predominant audiences, Shannon shares her choice to devote her life to artistic and professional pursuits the way many women devote themselves to raising families.
